Since the mid 1980’s, Gelok International has been a premier manufacturer of low profile, super absorbent laminates and composites. These laminates can be used directly as an absorbing substrate, or incorporated into a wide variety of finished products used to absorb fluids such as water, blood, exudate, urine and other aqueous based solutions, while reducing the bad odors associated with these fluids and bacterial activity. Applications for Gelok laminates include food tray pads, personal hygiene, medical packaging, medical cleanup, underpads, wound care, urinal pads, filtration, cable manufacturing and other operations where aqueous absorbency is needed.
Gelok Delivers “Super”- Absorbing Performance
Using a variety of super absorbent polymers, Gelok core materials can absorb many times their own weight of water, exudate or aqueous solution, locking it in a gel to prevent leakage and facilitating easy disposal. Gelok laminates feature an extraordinarily thin profile and a light weight composition that results in a lighter and more slender product. They are designed to offer absorbency rates and capacities tailored to meet specific applications. FDA approved grades are available for indirect food contact purposes where the Gelok laminate is the absorbent core. .
Gelok Custom Composites

Gelok absorbent laminates provide tremendous product flexibility due to our custom manufacturing process. Our laminates consist of superabsorbent (Polyacrylate) polymer granules bonded between two cellulose or a variety of non-woven sheets. The degree of absorbency is determined by the amount of polymer used in the core, while the substrate performance characteristics can be enhanced by the use of alternative materials with select basis weights.

More Manageable Finished Product After Use
Not only do Gelok laminates provide excellent absorbency and fluid transport, they offer greater stabilization (fluid retention under pressure), which means once your finished product has accomplished its absorbency mission it remains thinner, drier, more flexible and easier to
dispose of.
why choose gelok?
There are many reasons to choose Gelok laminates to satisfy the demanding absorbency applications that arise every day. Here are a few our customers have come to appreciate.
• Extraordinary thin profile
• Lightweight, hence a less bulky, lighter end product
• Customizable absorbent laminate to meet customer’s unique needs
• Quick absorbing (actual speed of absorbency varies by application and product design)
• Consistency of finished product
• Easy-to-use commercial form
• Quick start-up with low material waste
• Low start-up costs
• Greater machine efficiencies
